Servings: 4 regular sized muffins


  • 1 large ripe & soft banana, mashed with a fork until most lumps are gone
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar* I do 1 spoon white, 1 brown
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon oil I’ve used vegetable, olive or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Optional: Sprinkle of cinnamon chopped nuts, or chocolate chips (recommended ; )


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Stir together the mashed banana, sugar, egg, and oil using a fork or spoon until combined.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and stir well until combined.
  • Pour into a greased or lined muffin pan.
  • Bake for approximately 18-22 minutes until a toothpick comes out of the center clean. A couple of you mentioned using mini muffin tins and baking for 11-12 minutes. Cool & enjoy!


*Bananas get sweeter as they ripen, so if you have a very ripe, large banana you could get away with reducing the sugar a bit!
